  • I truly can’t say enough about the lovely wine tasting we did for our company at Café Ena with Leslee.
    It was a perfect evening feeding all of our senses with food, wine, and great company. I will remember every taste.
    Our clients had a truly memorable evening and we have received many wonderful comments from our event.
    Leslee’s ability to share your knowledge in a way that is educational, exciting and great fun is extraordinary.

    Thanks for making me look so good!
